Global tech firm Sterlite Tech on Wednesday launched a high-speed 5G-ready network solution titled “FlashFWD” at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2017 in New Delhi.
With the highest fibre density in the most compact cable package possible, the new technology enables extremely high data speeds, the company said in a statement.
The “FlashFWD 5G Series” solution features multi-tube single jacket ribbon optical fibre cable that combines robust performance for duct or direct buried installations, with productivity of high-count mass fusion splicing.
According to media reports, sharing the benefits of the new technology, Dr Badri Gomatam, CTO, Sterlite Tech, explained that given the need for extremely high bandwidth and low latency, our technology is disruptive as it moves from loose tube to higher fibre count ribbon cable for 5G networks”.
Shyam Mardikar, CTO, Mobile Networks, Airtel added that it is great to see a new high-tech solution developed in India. 5G-readiness in India is as much about radio as about the network backhaul. As long as we are doing everything right to get the network to that level, we will be able to achieve big 5G success.
